Sock Blend – Superwash BFL/Nylon Top
80% Superwash Blue-faced Leicester wool / 20% Nylon Not suitable for wet felting!! Very clean combed top. Staple length around 5 to 6 inches. BFL is not as soft as Merino, but has excellent durability in a sock yarn. Spin Off Magazine did a whole sock issue a couple of years ago and BFL was the winner so far as the best choice for spinning your own sock yarn. We have the mill custom-blend this for us, to save you from having to do the tedious job of combining wool and nylon together in a thorough way. This dyes up beautifully, either before or after spinning. The ovory-white colour is also real nice just as it comes. Would also be a good choice for kid's clothing. PRODUCT of CANADA, made from imported fibre.

Soy Fibre – Bleached (Top)
100% Soy Fibre. 100% Soy Fibre. Extremely clean combed top in "natural" ivory. Staple length of 4 to 5 inches. SoySilk® is a registered trademark, but our supply is a very similar product from another manufacturer. It turns out that what we have been selling for years is the bleached version of soy fibre. Lustrous and soft, soy fibre is enjoying great popularity by itself or in blends with wool and other fibres. Very well-suited to summer wear since it's great at absorbing moisture. Soy fibre is manufactured from the waste pulp that remains after soybeans have been pressed for oil. Surprisingly, though it comes from plants, soy fibre has more in common with protein fibres in the dyepot. It takes colour beautifully using acid dyes and will respond well to the usual natural dye premordants that are used on animal fibres.

Yak, Cream (Top)
100% Yak. Fine combed top, very clean. Staple length about 1 inch, in a creamy-white tone. Yak is a tricky fibre to spin by itself, because it's so short. It makes up for this by being super soft and warm. Consider blending with a fine wool, such as Merino. We can't seem to find information about the felting properties. Micron count approximately 21. White Yak is not a naturally-occuring colour, and is made from brown that has been depigmented. PRODUCT of CHINA
